Ford Galaxy - Traction Control ESP Clockspring Calibration (Mk2)
« on: February 04, 2012, 05:17:55 PM »
ESP Steering Angle Sensor Calibration

This procedure details how to perform the zero position calibration for the Steering Angle Sensor (G85) in Galaxy vehicles equipped with ESP (Electronic Stability Program). This procedure should be performed when vehicle alignment is performed or if any of the following components have been removed or replaced:

Clock Spring Unit
Steering Wheel
Steering Column
Track Rod(s)
Steering Rack

There are certain test conditions that must be met before doing this procedure:

Start the vehicle.

Turn the steering wheel one turn to the right and one turn to the left.
Drive in a short distance straight line on a level surface at a speed not higher than 15 mph.
If the steering wheel is straight during the test drive then stop the vehicle with the wheels pointed straight
Ensure that the steering wheel is not moved again.
Keep the engine running and do not switch off the ignition.

Using Vag-Com / VCDS:

[03 - ABS Brakes]
[Login - 11]
Enter 40168
[Do It!]
[Basic Settings - 04]
Group 060  (do NOT scroll up and down in the Basic Settings function, type in 060 instead)

This will store the zero (centered) position of the steering wheel. There should be a displayed message that reads: "Steer. angle sender compens OK". If you get an error, it may mean the Login was not successfully performed.

Click the [Done, Go Back] button to complete.
